A great find!
on 11 May 2005
To be honest, i can't even remember why i bought this film but i'm definately glad i did! I'm generally a fan of Jennifer Lopez as she's put out some good music, however, before 'Enough' i hadn't bothered with her as an actress due to being under the impression that all her films were basic romantic comedies! BUT then i stumbled upon this!
Although at the very start of the film you may be drawn into thinking this is another slushy love story - it suddenly takes a simple, yet clever and dramatic change in direction when it moves into a story based around issues surrounding 'violence in the home' and 'child custody'!
The story begins when Slim, a single waitress (played by Lopez) falls for a seemingly perfect catch - the charming Mitch! They soon marry and all is well, until a few years after the birth of their daughter when Slim finds Mitch in bed with another woman! From that moment she discovers his dark and aggressive side which he begins to use on her! Slim decides to run to escape her terrifying situation so takes her daughter and goes to find her long-lost father! With his support she finds a martial arts expert from whom she learns how to fight and defend herself! By changing her name and appearance she finds herself constantly on the run from Mitch, until she decides its time for her to fight back!
This is a great film and i would recommend people forget what you would expect a Jennifer Lopez film to be like (if you would be expecting it to be a bore) and go and find this as its a fast-moving and interesting movie!
